Hexalarious II, 2020
uv cured ink on cut-out composite aluminum panel
edition of 3, dimensions variable (48″ x 48″ overall)

Fabrication of this artwork is made possible with an ADAP grant from the Ohio Arts Council.

The following is from my grant application, titled “The Shape of Things to Come”:

With this grant, I will create 4 artworks, printed on rigid substrates as opposed to media of the traditional digital print (paper/canvas). Printing on rigid substrates opens up a new avenue of exploration in my work by allowing my geometric constructs to expand beyond the confines of square and rectangular formats with use of a Computer Numerical Control (CNC) Router that can cut the substrate panel to my specifications.

LGBT Community Center Art Installation

The new LGBT Community Center of Greater Cleveland, located in the Gordon Square Arts District on Cleveland’s west side, opened on June 14 and I’m so proud to have my art installed in this beautiful building designed by David Thal of WMF Architects. The work titled “Fifty Three Rhombuses” at 118″ x 56″ is printed on a composite aluminum panel and shaped by CNC router.

With spaces and programs to serve the LGBT community in a variety of ways, the building is a safe and open beacon in the community. I want to thank Phyllis Harris (Executive Director LGBT Community Center Cleveland), Mindy Tousley (Executive Director Artists Archives of the Western Reserve), David Thal (Architect), and the late David Ream for making it possible to come to life.
